First of all, the tour visited a large producer (Moët) known as a ‘negotiant’ as they buy in most of their grapes from producers. Moët have very plush premises in Epernay and the tour was well-polished, finishing off with a sample of Moët Imperiale. The next stop was at a small producer and champagne maker, Julien Chopin. The sampling was far more generous with 3 Champagnes and a dessert wine. They served lunch too, which was plentiful and tasty. This was our favourite stop and the Champagne was very nice. Finally we went to a cooperative whose name escapes me. They have an emphasis of using Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunière grapes. We had 3 samples here, though a bit smaller in size than in the other two producers. Throughout the trip we were given lots of information about the Champagne making process, it was fascinating. The driver and guide for the day was Julia and she was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable, had a pleasant personality and spoke excellent English too.
Angelique was awesome!!! We went outside of peak season so it ended up being just me and my wife, it was pouring rain, then we got caught in a snow storm and it was still sooo much fun. The individual tastings were amazing, her knowledge of each one was awesome and while the Moet visit is very touristy and fun, Lancelot was still the best. The champagne and the food was all amazing, we are southern Americans and had concerns about how a very French experience would be and it was far beyond anything we could have expected, if we could do it again tomorrow, we absolutely would. If you are having any 2nd thoughts about whether this is the right choice or not, I assure you, it is. It was a little more expensive than other tours but it was worth every penny. Thanks again guys and thank you sooo much Angelique, you really saved what could of been a very cold and terrible day!!
